Solid Surface (pRaL®)

Application

Interior fittings and furniture design. Depending on thickness, can be used:

  • To be bonded flat onto a core board (e.g. worktops);
  • Vertical (e.g. bath panels, wall cladding) and horizontal use;
  • Self-supporting applications.

Description

A man-made solid surface material manufactured by combining a natural mineral with an acrylic polymer. pRaL® is an acryl-based solid surface material (SSM) in a mixture with aluminium hydroxide.

By combining these ingredients a very hard material is obtained which can be sawn, thermoformed and fabricated to create seamless designs.


Features and benefits:

  • Offers an aesthetic, sustainable and functional solution for interior fittings and furniture design.
  • Highly durable, versatile and formable and both colours and textures run throughout the thickness of the product.
  • Available in plain coloured and speckled effects in various thicknesses.
  • Can be fabricated using conventional furniture-making tools.
  • Consists for the most part of natural materials, as a result of which it is suitable for contact with foods and has no harmful effects on the user.
  • Excellent resistance to surface wear.
  • Great formability, no joints and lightweight.
  • Moisture resistant.
  • Non-toxic and does not degrade with use.
